Maruti Suzuki

Spinny Assured Maruti Fronx

The Maruti Suzuki has been the number one carmaker in India for a long time and still is the invincible leader of this game. With the largest car line-up and most extensive service network Maruti operates at a far larger scale as compared to that of any other carmaker. This helps Maruti sell more cars than the combined sales of the next three carmakers every month. In April 2024, Maruti sold 1,37,952 units, once again emerging as the industry leader while its year-on-year sales grew almost flat. With such sales, Maruti managed to place seven of its cars among the top 10 selling cars in India.

Maruti Suzuki’s six-pack of Baleno, Celerio, Dzire, Ignis, Swift, and Wagon R collectively contributed a total of 56,953 units sold which makes for nearly 41 percent of the gross sales. Moreover, Maruti has recently launched the new Maruti Swift which is expected to boost its overall in the coming months.

Hyundai Motors

2024 Hyundai Creta facelift

If there is one carmaker which is trusted as much as Maruti, if not more, it is Hyundai, the longest-running foreign carmaker in India. Its fashionable cars come with an abundance of features and refined as well as dependable engines. What adds another layer of attraction is the competitive prices that Hyundai sets for its cars, drawing thousands of buyers to its dealerships every month. As per the latest sales chart, Hyundai sold 50,201 cars, almost tallying the sales that it did during the corresponding month last year. Meanwhile, Hyundai SUVs contributed nearly 70 percent to its gross sales as Creta led the pack followed by Venue and Exter. Moreover, the Hyundai Creta became the best-selling SUV yet again and is the only Hyundai car to reach among the top 10 selling cars.

Tata Motors

new Tata Nexon. New Car Facelifts Launched in 2023

Recording sales of 47,885 units and 1.9 percent y-o-y growth in April 2024, Tata Motors held on to the position of third-largest automaker. The Indian carmaker has radically grown and built itself as an esteemed global brand in the last few years. What powered this sudden rise was a new vision that spiked the premium quotient of Tata’s cars and made them some of the most good-looking cars in India.

Today, Tata is the only car brand in India with all its cars tested by the Global NCAP. While the Tigor and Tiago have scored a 4-star G-NCAP rating, which is respectable, the rest all have scored a 5-star G-NCAP rating. With a formidable dominance in the ICE segment, Tata is also ruling the EV arena with three EVs on offer: Tata Nexon EV, Tata Tigor EV, and Tata Tiago EV. Moreover, after Maruti Suzuki, Tata has the second-largest line-up of CNG-powered cars with four of its cars available in CNG variants.

Mahindra

Spinny Assured Scorpio N

Esteemed for making tough-as-nails SUVs, Mahindra has long been laser-focused on this segment. Thereby, today, when the demand for SUVs is higher than ever, Mahindra stands strong as the fourth largest carmaker in India. In a line-up of nine cars, the Indian carmaker has eight SUVs and one highly underrated MUV, Marazzo. All of Mahindra’s SUVs are strong contenders in their respective segments, while the Mahindra Scorpio and Mahindra Bolero have earned legendary status. Last month, Mahindra racked up sales of 41,008 units, growing its year-on-year performance by 18.2 percent, which is the highest among the top four manufacturers.

As always, the heavy lifting was done by the Scorpio and Bolero, collectively contributing 23,624 units, which is nearly 58 percent of Mahindra’s gross sales. Under the Scorpio badge, Mahindra sells Scorpio Classic and Scorpio N, while under the Bolero badge, it sells Bolero, Bolero Neo, and Bolero Neo Plus which has been recently launched. What has also been recently launched is the new Mahindra XUV 3XO which is the facelifted Mahindra XUV300.

Kia India

Kia Sonet

A long and highly successful run of Hyundai made its subsidiary Kia arrive in India in 2019. With its first car, the Kia Seltos, the Korean carmaker achieved overnight success, and since then its popularity has been growing in leaps and bounds. With only four cars on sale, Kia usually manages to beat other established foreign carmakers in India.

In April 2024, 19,968 Kia cars were sold and while this translated into a 14 percent year-on-year decline, it still managed to beat its strongest rival, Toyota. As the Sonet emerged as the best-selling Kia car with sales of 7,901 units, it was followed by the Seltos contributing 6,734 units, and Carens contributing 5,328 units.

Toyota

Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder

When it comes to durability, there is hardly any other carmaker that is as reputed as Toyota, and this is something that has always kept the Japanese carmaker among the front runners in the Indian car market. Last month Toyota sold 18,700 units, gaining a staggering 32 percent year-on-year growth, which was the greatest among the top ten carmakers.

As usual, the sales were led by Innova MUV which sold 7,103 units. Toyota sells two MUVs under the Innova badge; one is the hugely successful Innova Crysta and the other is an even more premium version, the Innova Hycross that has turned out to be a ground-breaking success. Meanwhile, Glanza, Hyryder, and Fortuner followed by selling 4,380 units, 3,252 units, and 2,325 units respectively. Moreover, Toyota has recently launched the Toyota Urban Cruiser Taisor compact SUV which is Toyota’s version of Maruti Fronx.

MG Motors

Spinny Assured MG Gloster

As a relatively new foreign brand in India, MG Motors is gradually garnering consumer affinity. The main strength of MG cars lies in a higher level of comfort and technology. This makes them rise above the competition when it comes to attracting buyers who fancy new-age features and the best levels of comfort. In the fierce competition of the Indian car market, MG rivals some highly reputed and far-longer-running carmakers such as Honda and Volkswagen. Last month, MG managed to outsell all its immediate rivals, with sales of 4,485 units which is a slight 1.5 percent decline in its year-on-year sales. Currently, MG has 6 cars in its stable: MG Astor, MG Hector, MG Hector Plus, MG Gloster, MG ZS EV, and the MG Comet EV.

Honda Cars

Honda City

One of the veteran foreign carmakers in India, Honda currently has a handful of cars in its portfolio. However, this is a fact about quantity, not quality. As always, Honda cars are some of the best cars in the Indian market. While the Honda Elevate SUV and the iconic Honda City sedan are great options as premium family cars, the Honda Amaze is more of a capable budget family sedan. In April 2024, Amaze led Honda’s sales, contributing 1,796 units, followed by Elevate contributing 1,731 units, and City contributing 824 units. As an aggregate Honda sold 4,351 units with an 18.1 percent decline in its year-on-year sales.

Renault

Renault raked in sales of 3,707 units in April 2024, seeing a 14.2 percent drop in its year-on-year performance. For the last couple of years, Renault’s line-up has remained unchanged and the ever-growing competition is certainly showing its effect on its sales figures. That is not to say Renault cars are not capable. In the fierce competition of the Indian car market, the French carmaker attracts buyers with the aggressive prices of its cars and the value they deliver. Currently, Renault has only 3 cars in its portfolio: Kwid, Kiger, and Triber, among which Kiger and Triber have scored 4-star ratings in the G-NCAP safety test.

Volkswagen

Spinny Assured Volkswagen Taigun

The prestigious Volkswagen Group has long been operating in India and built a reputation for its unmatchable quality. Whether it is the toughness of the bodies, cabin comfort, or the reliability of engines, Volkswagen cars shine differently than others due to the globally acclaimed standards of the German carmakers. With only three cars on offer, Volkswagen collected sales of 3,049 units in April 2024, seeing a 0.6 percent uptick in its year-on-year performance. The sales were led by Taigun, contributing 1,758 units, followed by Virtus, selling 1,183 units and Tiguan selling 108 units. Moreover, while Virtus and Kushaq scored a 5-star G-NCAP safety rating, the Tiguan has secured a 5-star rating in the Euro NCAP safety test.
